"It took me fifteen years to discover that I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous." Robert Benchley
"Anyone can do any amount of work, provided it isn't the work he is supposed be doing at that moment." Robert Benchley
Treasure Island, Florida was a sweet little paradise. Some writer friends and I had margaritas, faced the wind on the upper deck of the rented beach house, and had some interesting conversations about the secret lives of Disney characters. We debated whether the moon was full, who deserves to get eaten by tigers, and whether exposition should just plain be outlawed in the opening couple chapters of a book. Oh, yeah and we wrote a little.
If you're looking for a getaway, Florida has some beautiful beaches. For company, I recommend avoiding the jellyfish, but embracing everything else.
Where in the world are you today?
